Diabetes Expo

Diabetes Expo Phoenix – American Diabetes Expo

PHOENIX Arizona — On Saturday, April 26, 2008, the American Diabetes Association will once again host the free Diabetes Expo—an annual, one-day event showcasing the latest products and services for people affected by diabetes. This highly interactive Diabetes Expo event includes activities for people of all ages, including a fun Youth Zone with exciting activities and information for children with diabetes and their families. The Diabetes Expo also provides the public with a unique opportunity to talk with health care experts and obtain important medical and nutrition information.

“If you or a loved one has diabetes – or is at high risk of developing the disease – Diabetes Expo provides a fun, relaxed environment to learn a great deal about the important aspects of prevention and management of diabetes and its serious complications,” said Howard Shulman, DO, FACP, FACOI, Diabetes Expo Chair. “The Diabetes Expo is for all people affected by diabetes, as well as anyone interested in healthy eating and active living.”

Diabetes is the nation’s fifth deadliest disease, and it has no cure. In 2005, there were approximately 469,000 residents of Arizona who self-identified as having diabetes, nearly 7.5 percent of the total population (Behavior Risk Factor Surveillance Survey, 2005). Diabetes can lead to serious complications and premature death, but people with diabetes can take steps to manage the disease and lower the risk of complications. Early diagnosis and treatment of diabetes is critical. Unfortunately, many people living with diabetes do not even know it.

More than 75 exhibitors are participating in the 12th annual ADA Diabetes Expo in Phoenix, which will be held Saturday, April 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Phoenix Convention Center, Halls F & G (33 S. Third St. in Phoenix, Arizona 85004). Admission is Free. Stop by “ADA World” and participate in interactive cooking demonstrations, live Web site demonstrations, and find out how the American Diabetes Association is helping people with diabetes and their families in your community.

For more information about diabetes or the Diabetes Expo, call 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383) or visit the Arizona Diabetes Expo site.

When: Saturday, April 26, 2008
Where: Phoenix Convention Center
Exhibit Halls F & G
33 S. Third St.
Phoenix, Arizona 85004 – Map and directions.

Time: 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The American Diabetes Association is the nation’s leading voluntary health organization supporting diabetes research, information and advocacy. Founded in 1940, the Association has offices in every region of the country, providing services to hundreds of communities.

City of Mesa utilities by azhttp

Filed under: City of Mesa, Community, Community Meeting, Entertainment, Meeting, Mesa

City of Mesa utilities: connecting with our community since 1917

The City of Mesa has a reason to celebrate. The city has provided safe,

reliable natural gas and electric service to its customers for nearly a

decade – 90 years to be exact. In 1917, the City of Mesa acquired its

electric and natural gas systems from Dr. A.J. Chandler. In honor of this

milestone, Mesa utility customers are invited to join the Utilities

Department at a celebration on Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the

Utilities Building, 640 N. Mesa Drive.

Come out and enjoy a food and a variety of activities and displays to learn

more about your utility provider. Activities include a demonstration of the

laser gas leak detector that can detect methane gas remotely, a natural gas

explosion chamber, an electric bike, which challenges you to generate

electricity with your legs, a spinning wheel that tests your knowledge of

Mesa’s utilities, and more. Learn how to read your natural gas and electric

meter, how to reset your breaker, what natural gas smells like, and how much

energy you can save by switching to compact fluorescent bulbs. There will

also be equipment on display, such as a gas sniffer truck, a backhoe, a

boom/digger truck, and more. The event offers something for everyone.

For more information about the event, call (480) 644-2265 or visit

www.cityofmesa.org/utilities.

The October 6 event also serves as the kick off for Public Gas and Public

Power Weeks, which run from Oct. 7 to 13.

Public Gas Week, an annual nationwide event sponsored by American Public Gas

Association (APGA), is intended to build awareness of the benefits of having

a community-owned natural gas distribution system. There are approximately

1,000 public gas systems nationwide. APGA advocates for these publicly owned

natural gas distribution systems.

“Mesa’s natural gas system continues to be a valuable community asset

controlled by our customers,” said Gerald Paulus, gas division director.

“We are committed not only to continue our legacy of quality service, but to

look for opportunities to improve operations and better serve the

community.”

Mesa is also celebrating Public Power Week (PPW) along with more than 2,000

other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a

not-for-profit basis to 44 million Americans. PPW is a national, annual

event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association

(APPA) in Washington, D.C. APPA is the service organization for community-

and state-owned electric utilities.

“The anniversary celebration and Public Power Week gives us a chance to

highlight the City’s role in effectively powering Mesa’s electric service

area,” said Marty Hunter, electric division director. “Our employees work

day and night to provide safe, reliable power, all at comparable rates, with

a focus on customer service and environmental stewardship.”

The City is proud of its heritage of providing safe, reliable natural gas

and electric service to our residents. For more information about the City

of Mesa Utilities Department and the many services it provides, please visit

www.cityofmesa.org/utilities. For more information about APGA or APPA, visit

www.apga.org or www.appanet.org respectively.

CHANDLER CENTER FOR THE ARTS TO HOST PUBLIC FORUMS by azhttp

www.chandlercenter.org

IN CONJUNCTION WITH EXPANSION FEASIBILITY STUDY

CHANDLER, AZ – The Chandler Center for the Arts will host public forums on

the following dates: Wednesday, September 26 @ 7pm ~ Tuesday, October

16 @ 7pm ~ Wednesday, November 14 @ 7pm. The purpose of the forums is

to assess the need for expanded arts facilities for today’s population.

Chandler’s population has grown from 89,000 when the Chandler Center for the

Arts opened in 1989 to 247,567 today.

Chandler Center for the Arts is a multi-theatre performing and visual arts

facility that is jointly owned by the City of Chandler and the Chandler

Unified School District. The facility is used Monday through Thursday

primarily for school arts curriculum and other school activities, and Friday

through Sunday for City/or public performances. The City contracts with the

Chandler Cultural Foundation, a non-profit corporation, to act as the

programming and fundraising entity of the Chandler Center for the Arts.

Under this scenario, the Center represents one of the most unique

organizational structures in the country.

In the last year, separate bond elections were held in the Chandler Unified

School District and the City of Chandler that resulted in $6.7 million in

approved funding to replace aging theatrical equipment and to updating

facility amenities at the Chandler Center for the Arts. Additionally, the

City of Chandler and the Chandler Cultural Foundation hired Architekton and

Associates to lead a Facility Review and Expansion Feasibility Study. The

facility review portion was completed in May and is primarily associated

with the bond-approved projects. The expansion feasibility portion is

primarily intended to guide long-range planning and/or expansion for the

Chandler Center for the Arts. Interviews for the expansion feasibility

began in July with organizations, individuals and community groups and will

conclude with the public forums.

Each public forum will begin with an introduction on the study that has been

conducted to date. Additionally, each forum will include a different focus

of arts services for discussion and will provide an opportunity for public

input. Specifically, the September 26 forum will include a discussion on

facilities; the October 16 forum will focus on programming, and the November

14 forum will cover marketing. Light refreshments will be provided. All

forums will be held at the Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 N. Arizona

Avenue. For more information call (480) 782-2683.
